Abstract
A review was presented which discussed the division of responsibilities for government agencies such as OSHA and NIOSH, the first in the Department of Labor and the second in the Department of Health, Education and Welfare (HEW). The Department of Labor has the primary responsibility in determining priorities, in setting standards, in enforcement, in operating a national recordkeeping and reporting system, in approving state plans and awarding state grants, and in promoting employer/employee education. HEW has a supporting role in most of these activities and in addition conducts health and safety research, hazard evaluation sand toxicity determinations, annual compilation of a list of toxic substances, industry wide studies, and development of an adequate supply of manpower to carry out the purposes of the Act. Various activities taken by each of these organizations to carry out their tasks were reviewed.
